Capoeira is a Brazilian sport, combining dance, martial-art and acrobatics.

"If you’re looking for something a bit different to your usual exercise classes and want to try something new, then capoeira should be at the top of your list."

- LeftLion Magazine

University Society classes are for absolute beginners, and no level of fitness or previous experience are needed. Come and give it a go, and see what you can achieve!

Classes at the University of Nottingham are taught by Professor Tatu, who runs Nottingham’s Capoeira group, which is affiliated to one of the biggest Capoeira groups worldwide: “Cordão de Ouro”.

-------------- Mondays 17:00 to 18:30 ---------------
Capoeira acrobatics and stretching for beginners and improvers.

Working with our inflatable tumble track, you will learn to do flips and handstands, and all kinds of acrobatic Capoeira movement. Don't be shy: this class is for people with little or no experience of acrobatics. Over the year we will work with you to build your confidence, fitness and skills to achieve all kinds of things you didn't think were possible with your body! The class will end with stretching exercises designed to relax you and improve your muscle tone, flexibility, and strength.

[30 min] warm up and stretching 
[1 hour] Capoeira teaching with Prof Tatu / Prof Kiri.

Before our Monday class, a post will be up on our Facebook page asking you to like/comment to let us know if you'll be coming to the class. (So we will have minimum amount of attendance (6 people) for each session to take place.
